Who We Are
The UT Archery Club is a recreational and competitive club that’s growing fast. In we’ve grown from just four members in 2016 to over 60 members, including our new men’s and women’s compound teams. Our men’s team took a gold medal at outdoor nationals last May, beating out national champion Texas A&M. We’ve been hard at work training up new members and have had several our veteran archers get their coaching certifications. Through the club, our members engage in volunteering and service projects around Austin. We hope to keep growing and bringing archery to our community here on the 40 acres. For us, archery isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifelong pursuit.
What We’re Fundraising For
Every year, the club sends a team to USA Archery’s National Outdoor Collegiate Championship. This year we’ll be shooting at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. We don’t ever want money to be the reason a member who has been working hard all season can’t attend. Getting a full team to the other side of the country is no small feat. Proceeds from your donations will be used to help us cover the cost of travel for not just Outdoor Nationals, but also for other tournaments closer to home like Texas Shootout. The club prides itself for having a wide range of equipment available to people just starting out, so donations will also be used to buy beginner equipment for our new members.
We’re grateful for any amount you would like to give!
Outdoor Nationals is an incredible experience. The shares a strong comradery at competition. and getting to watch some of the best in the sport compete is amazing. The club relies on donations to keep growing and we don’t want to stop expanding for any reason.
